Paysafe secures naming rights to the No.16 Rahal Letterman Lanigan Honda for the GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma
Payments services company Paysafe Group Plc (LON:PAYS) announced a partnership with Zachary Claman DeMelo who will pilot the No. 16 Rahal Letterman Lanigan Paysafe Honda at the GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma on September 17.
This race partnership, which also marks Paysafe’s debut in the Verizon IndyCar Series, celebrates a mutual focus on performance at the highest level.
DeMelo, one of the youngest drivers to race in the Verizon IndyCar Series at just 19 years old, was the third highest point scorer in IndyCar’s official feeder series, Indy Lights, throughout the second half of the championship. In the final eight races, DeMelo earned a race win, four podium finishes, and was the lone driver to finish in the top six or better eight consecutive times. Additionally, DeMelo is no stranger to the Verizon IndyCar Series, having served as a test-driver for Schmidt Peterson Motorsports Indy car program over the past two seasons. Zach’s Indy car testing experience paired with his rank in the Indy car feeder series makes him the highest ranked Canadian rookie currently eligible to compete in the Verizon IndyCar Series.
Having driven innovation in payments since 1996, Paysafe knows success is predicated on agility in fast paced environments, and the ability to leverage latest technologies.
Paysafe and DeMelo share a common desire to perform at the highest level based on anticipation, execution, speed and safety,” said Oscar Nieboer, Chief Marketing Officer, Paysafe. “DeMelo’s potential has paved the way for him to become one of the youngest drivers to race in the Verizon IndyCar Series and Paysafe is proud to support such up and coming talent.
DeMelo embodies the spirit that defines Paysafe and reflects our track record in championing new and emerging opportunities as a business,” added Nieboer. We look forward to the double debut of DeMelo and Paysafe on the track in Sonoma.
Paysafe’s strength and momentum as a leading payments company will be well represented on the track on September 17,” said Zachary Claman DeMelo, Indy car driver for Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing. “I am extremely proud to have the Paysafe logo on my uniform and car as my dream of driving in the Verizon IndyCar Series becomes a reality.
